EVAPORATION RETARDANT AND FINISHING AID FOR FRESH CONCRETE
MasterKure 111 is an evaporation retardant and finishing aid, which assists in producing high-quality concrete flatwork. It retards water evaporation during trowelling, regulates the surface condition of the slab and permits better adherence to finishing schedules.
All types of concrete slabs, toppings, and finishing operations including:
Concrete containing water reducing, retarding or accelerating admixtures
Air entrained concrete
Tilt-up, lift slab, pre-cast or prestressed concrete
Metallic or natural aggregate dry shakes and toppings
Burnished hard trowel, non-slip, swirl-trowelled, or wood float finishes
Hand or machine finishing
Membrane-type curing compounds, plastic sheeting, waterproof paper or ponding
MasterKure 111 is especially effective in combating rapid-drying conditions such as high temperatures, low humidity and high winds.
Reduces surface moisture evaporation – reduces or eliminates plastic shrinkage cracking and wind crusting by about 80% in wind and 40% in sunlight
Reduces potential for surface drying shrinkage crazing – concrete quality improves with better and denser surface
Easier finishing – the surface closes better under the trowel giving an improved finish with less work
Reduces or eliminates crusting, stickiness and underlying sponginess – due to rapid evaporation leading to unevenness and poor surface texture
Essential hot weather concreting practice – to combat rapid-drying conditions and retard evaporation
